Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1993

Coravin with lowest expectations was the highlight after 1 hr glass decant. Dense, full-bodied, dominated by sweet oak and cedar. Creme de cassis and Asian spice. Far better than expected. - Robbie’s, London — a month ago

Huge fan of leoville Barton. They may not make a 100 rated wine but consistently solid. They last forever and well priced.

Silencieux Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Post coravin. This was terrific right out of the gate compared to coravining it and needing to wait a bit. Great concentration. — 8 days ago

Oddero

Vigna Rionda Barolo Nebbiolo 1998

Pnp, respectively Coravin & pour. 1 large glass filled well ("Zalto Burgundy") and I left it breathe for about 1-2 hours.

I am reminded with every sip, why i love this MGA so much. The 1998 "Vigna Rionda" doesn't show a single sign of being almost 20 years old, instead I find in it a beguiling freshness, a pure & pretty ruby red color (maybe with very slight brick red signs) and a load of silky noble tannins. The nose is very terroir-typical and after drinking many many La Morra Baroli lately, it feels like an explosion of its own kind - in the nose and palate. Serralunga!

This - to me - is "Vigna Rionda" of Serralunga d'Alba in a very pretty expression: fine licorice with hints of cola, graphite, fruitcake, sweet exotic spices, cuban tobacco, fig jam. The more air it gets in the big "Zalto Burgundy" glass, the more flavors unfold. The tannins are well integrated, they feel warm and kinda "linger" in the back. I am really impressed, especially as 1998 is not the greatest vintage of the 90s.

Compared with a 2000 mag last year, this 1998 showed much fresher and felt younger. Blind, I would have said it's a 2001 perhaps

A good and well kept bottle of '98 has the freshness of the 2001 but much more complexity and elegance I'd say by experience. If not the best vintage of the '90 for me I'd say only second to the '99 for longevity, but not for elegance ( maybe a little random in different subareas)
Vigna Rionda should also be called the super Cru
All this just to say that I loved this wine too 👍

Château Batailley

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Pintia Muestra Toro Tempranillo 2012

Via Coravin. Coffee, leather, and berries on the nose. Black plum, cassis mid-palate. Firm tannins and fairly dry on the finish. Just a baby. Needs much more time in the bottle. Fun to try — a month ago
